- CFX384 Touch™ Real-Time PCR Detection System
- Catalog No.: 185-5484
The CFX384 Touch Real-Time PCR Detection System is a powerful and precise real-time PCR instrument in a 384-well format, for researchers who require both ease of use and rapid, high-throughput data acquisition. The CFX384 Touch System utilizes accurate temperature control and sensitive, 4-color detection optics to deliver reliable and repeatable qPCR results for singleplex or multiplex reactions.
Quickly set up runs and monitor amplification traces in real time on the integrated LCD touch screen, or use CFX Maestro™ Software to easily and intuitively design your experiment and analyze results from a connected computer. With up to four-target detection, unsurpassed thermal cycler performance, unrivaled stand-alone functionality, and powerful software, the CFX384 Touch System was designed to advance your qPCR.
With the CFX384 Touch Real-Time PCR Detection System you can: Obtain precise quantification and multiplex target discrimination ? optical system uses long-lasting solid-state technology with 5 filtered LEDs and 5 filtered photodiodes Configure the system to fit your laboratory needs ? optimized design lets you run without a computer, run up to 4 systems from 1 computer, or integrate with the CFX Automation System II for higher throughput Confirm system performance and data reliability ? internal system qualification and system test software, automated data quality control, and various validation tool services are available Obtain accurate results with volumes as low as 3 µl ? minimize sample and reagent usage Easily integrate with your laboratory information management system (LIMS) ? integrate with any LIMS using built-in LIMS file management Combine the CFX384 Touch System with good laboratory practice standards ? use CFX Maestro Software, Security Edition, which complies with U.S. FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations, for data collection and analysis
Innovative Optical Design The CFX384 Touch™ system's solid-state optical technology (five filtered LEDs and five filtered photodiodes) provides sensitive detection for precise quantification and target discrimination. Scanning just above the sample plate, the optics shuttle individually illuminates and detects fluorescence from each well with high sensitivity and no cross talk. The optical system automatically collects data from all wells during data acquisition, so you can enter or edit well information on your own schedule.
Four-Target Multiplexing The CFX384 Touch system can discriminate up to four targets in a single reaction well. The optical filter sets are designed to maximize fluorescence detection for specific dyes in specific channels. At every position and with every scan, the optics shuttle is reproducibly centered above each well, so the light path is always fixed and optimal, and there is no need to sacrifice data collection in one of the channels to normalize to a passive reference.
A System That Grows with Your Research The flexibility of the 1000-series platform allows your setup to grow and evolve as your needs change. Adding more instruments to increase throughput or expand options is as easy as connecting a USB cable. CFX Manager™ software can independently run four instruments, including a combination of CFX96 Touch™, CFX96 Touch Deep Well™, or CFX384 Touch™ real-time instruments and C1000 Touch™ or S1000™ thermal cyclers. You may start a run on one instrument while another is running a different experiment, or you can start the same experiment on all four instruments at once.
